Mantras contribute to enhanced mindfulness, a crucial element in mental health.
Mindfulness practices, which include mantra repetition, have been associated with various mental health benefits as shown by a meta-analysis conducted by Khoury, B., et al. (2015), including the reduction of symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Contemplation is interchangeable with meditation. Both allow you the time to sit with yourself , reduce the voice in your head and therefore provide room for imagination and creativity to grow. Just like in a crowded noisy room you can’t think ,similarly in a noisy critical state, ideas and curiosity cannot emerge.
